Feeling Pregnant asks Abby:
What from Young Living can I use to help with my morning sickness and also support my nutrition during this time where I am getting little and keeping less down?
So, I am freshly pregnant and apparently, this pregnancy will be much like my other two with… Morning Sickness! This is a normal part of pregnancy for many, but thankfully my Young Living oils and supplements are here to help me ease the nausea. This makes for a much more enjoyable pregnancy.
Daily, I apply DiGize to my belly each morning. I try to re-apply it throughout the day about 4x per day.
I ran out of Ningxia Red right before I found out I was expecting, but it is on my upcoming ER order and I plan to drink 2oz of that daily. I also plan to not run out again. I get nauseous when pregnant, and I don’t eat or drink much in the beginning. I know I need any extra nutrients that will be easy on my stomach. Ningxia, I expect, will be! Don’t follow my advice here, but I’ve never been able to keep pre-natal vitamins down. For that reason, I have to get a little sneaky on my body and find ways to sneak in extra nutrition that is not in a pill form.
MegaCal is something that I take each morning, the recommended dosage, to try to get in the vitamins I am missing from food. Does it stay down…. eh, I’m not so sure. LOL. I like to believe it does. This morning, I had the thought to take it in the evenings and see if that helps.
Throughout the day, Stress Away is so helpful. I feel that it relieves the stress and brings about a calming feeling for me. Plus, it smells so heavenly!
I always have a strong nose, but especially now. I will smell things that make me run for the bathroom. Enter PURIFICATION!!!! What a must. I diffuse this, add a drop to my dishwasher, and I have even been known to add a drop to the toilet water before spending some time with my face there. (TMI… I realize that…)
I hope this helps a momma or two out there who struggle in pregnancy the same way I do! Enjoy these additional tips from other expecting Moms on our team.
Additional Tips from Expecting Mom’s:
Itching… From Donna Wysong: “You all I normally have crazy insane itching my entire pregnancy. Not this one, I have itched a little here and there until this evening. I have been tested for everything imaginable and the Drs come up with nothing! So tonight I grabbed out my gentle babies book and guess what… Itching is in there! Praise the Lord! I am currently soaking in an amazing bath and then will be spraying myself down with Claraderm when I get out. I can not tell you how thankful I am for my oils!”
Dry Skin… from Sarah Pope Cook: “This is an approximation of the recipe I have been using to spray on my growing baby belly this pregnancy. It really has helped to keep my skin moisturized … Keeping new stretch marks at bay. It’s also made my skin look healthier all around (especially my old stretch marks!). Loving this stuff!”
